Suffering burns can be both excruciatingly painful and require expensive medical care. Find out if your case qualifies for a monetary settlement by working with a Roseville burn injury lawyer.
Severe burn injuries can easily be some of the most painful and permanently disfiguring injuries that anyone can experience. Whether you were burned in an auto wreck or because of an explosive property hazard in a premises liability incident, you have a right to compensation when someone else was at fault.
Unfortunately, getting the funds you need and deserve so that you can pay for your recovery isn’t easy—especially when an insurance company is involved. A Roseville burn injury lawyer from Crowell Law Offices can help you identify not only who owes you a settlement, but also how much you should expect to receive.
The size of your burn, its location, and its degree will determine how much of an impact it will have on your life. If you only suffered a first-degree burn, then the damage will be minimal and will most likely not qualify for compensation through a personal injury claim.
A second- or third-degree burn, however, can have an extreme effect on your quality of life. These burns can easily lead to extensive scarring and permanent disfigurement. If the wounds are on your face or another highly visible area, they can have a dramatic impact on your personal relationships and self-esteem.
Especially with third-degree burns, your mobility could even be affected. These burns often damage the underlying muscle tissue, which could reduce the range of motion in your arms or neck and even make it difficult to walk. Your Roseville burn injury lawyer will work with you and your doctor to determine how you will be affected by your burns and if you can expect to recover.
Second- and third-degree burns suffered in accidents often qualify for monetary compensation. These injuries are bound to require significant medical care, which you should not have to pay for if you weren’t responsible for the cause.

When you’ve been burned in an accident, you need to be compensated so that you can recover to the fullest extent possible. This is true whether your wounds will heal with moderate medical care or will require skin grafts and cosmetic surgery.
